Fund The Purchase Of Real Estate

Accessing Your Checkbook IRA Funds To Invest In Foreign Real Estate

Feb. 18, 2011, Panama City, Panama: With a Self-Directed, or Checkbook, IRA, you can tap your IRA funds for the purpose of investing in foreign real estate.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

Buying real estate overseas isn't complicated, but finding the capital to finance it can be. It's not possible to borrow locally for the purchase of real estate in many countries, including many of the ones that might interest you most. Where it is possible, you typically can get a mortgage only up to the age you can get a local life insurance policy (which is generally 75). This means that, if you're 65, you'll be able to get only up to a 10-year mortgage from a bank.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

Our first friends in Ireland were tradesmen. Lief and I both were working full-time, departing for the office early each morning and returning home in time for dinner each evening, leaving little opportunity for socializing. Whatever free time I had during our first two years in the country I invested in renovating and then furnishing and decorating the old house in the country we'd bought to make our new home.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

What if the doomsayers are right? What if civilization as we know it is headed off a cliff, as they continue to predict?
